Anyone have any feedback on the Storehouse tool chests available at Harbor
Freight? Looks like a good deal if they are quality construction.
I would be using them in a home workshop, not a commercial shop.
We have a HF store nearby and the rolling tool chests I have seen there were
extremely crappy. I have one big requirement when I buy a tool chest: ball
bearing slides. The ones (at least in the price range you're probably
looking at) I've seen at HF have friction slides.
Agreed. The US General tool chest I've seen at our local HF seems to be a
pretty good cabinet, but you'd have to catch it on sale to make it a really
good deal. It does have ball bearing slides, etc. The Storehouse stuff is
pure junk. Lightweight, cheap construction, etc.
I bought this one.
It works ok. I pretty much filled it up with tools but amazingly the
clutter in the shop didn't decrease. ;-)
If I don't do something stupid like tow it I expect it will last 20+ years
in my home shop. If I hit the lotto I'll replace it with a $1000 model with
